My husband and I stayed at Kapama on a recommendation from a friend, and we were so glad we did. Kapama is a private reserve right next to the airport, so it's very convenient. Private reserves are better than the national parks (like Kruger) because they have less rules and the guides are able to "off road" to find the animals. And off road we did!We loved our guide, Harry, and his tracker (and brother), Noel and we saw each of the Big 5! Harry was very informative and knowledgeable, having grown up in the bush, so he was the perfect guide. His obsession with finding a leopard paid off--apparently leopards are very hard to track down!The lodge itself was luxurious. The rooms were very comfortable (we stayed in one of the spa suites), the food was delicious, and the spa was amazing. We were there in winter, so we really couldn't enjoy the pools, but the pools are gorgeous and I'm sure very refreshing in the summer.Although the following may be the same with all safari experiences, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:1) The drives are 3 hours long and, of course, nature is the only available bathroom. This wouldn't be so bad if not for the fact that when the guide stops, he likes to stop in an open area so that lions can't sneak up on you and eat you. So, especially if you're a woman, you might not feel comfortable relieving yourself within eye-and-earshot of your group. My advice would be to not drink during the tea/coffee time they have right before each drive. Basically, you need to dehydrate yourself. My husband and I drank a ton of water when we left the reserve and I think our bodies were confused. 2) It's freaking cold in the winter when you're driving in an open-top truck. Especially in the morning. We didn't believe that we would really need a winter hat, gloves, coat, etc. because, hey, the LOW was only going to be in the 50s. Well, you do need those things, so bring them. I think going in the winter is a good option because the bush is more "open" (i.e., no leaves on the trees), so it's easier to search for and spot animals, and there really isn't any rain, but you do need to keep in mind that it's cold and pack accordingly. In the day, it would be in the mid-70s and perfect for laying out by the pool.I would definitely recommend Kapama to anyone looking for an awesome and luxurious safari!
